“Strength of mind is exercise, not rest”

Alexander Pope

In November 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education adopted a new statewide achievement test, AzMERIT, for Arizona students. In order to help communicate the purpose of the new test and several important aspects of the upcoming implementation process, the Arizona Department of Education has created a series of helpful resources to guide all stakeholders..

As you know, Arizona’s College and Career Ready standards means higher standards and increased rigor; that increased level of expectation can be seen in this first administration of the AzMERIT exam. Our partners at Expect More Arizona have put together a great video to better explain to parents the importance of checking in on your child’s achievement, much like your annual doctor’s visit.
